INCS 2020: History of Sustainability & Environmentalism LA March 5-8
Thursday, March 5, 2020 (All day) to Sunday, March 8, 2020 (All day)

Please help spread word that registration is still open for a conference on the history of sustainability and environmentalism, the 35th annual meeting of Interdisciplinary Nineteenth Century Studies: "The G R E E N Conference: Sustainability, Industrialization, and Environmental Knowledge." We are hosting the conference in Los Angeles, March 5-8, 2020.

Our goal is a net carbon-zero conference. The conference will be held in downtown Los Angeles, at an accessibility-friendly hotel, located at a major metro stop in order to facilitate travel by rail. There will be print-on-demand support at the venue to facilitate the printing of accessibility copies. We encourage participants to consider their travel options carefully for environmental impact. Registrants will also have the option to support carbon offsetting at registration. 

We are excited to announce our two keynote speakers: Professor Pablo Mukherjee, author of Postcolonial Environments and Natural Disasters and Victorian Imperial Culture, and Hugo and Nebula Award winner Kim Stanley Robinson, author of many climate and science fiction novels, including the Three Californias, The Mars Trilogy, The Years of Rice and Salt, and Red Moon.

To register for the conference, update your INCS membership, and reserve a room at the conference hotel, please go to this registration link. We booked a discounted room rate at the Sheraton Grand, where the conference will be held, which is at the 7th and Metro Station in Downtown LA, with immediate access by train to the beach and other LA attractions, and with various restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques on site. 

For further information, please visit for more details about the conference, the keynotes, and soon, a preliminary schedule.

Next month, we will be sending information about how to sign up for one of our workshops, which will be held on Friday, March 6.

See you in Los Angeles!
